We were happy to see that Rob Anderson, Comics Experience alum and staffer, has TWO books solicited in the February Diamond Previews catalog. Both books will be shipping to comic shops in April of 2014.
First is My Little Pony: Friends Forever #4, written by Rob with art by Amy Mebberson. The book is published by IDW.
According to the solicitation, this story follows Twilight Sparkle as she visits her brother, Shining Armor, in the Crystal Empire. However, when a mysterious ghost starts haunting the castle, the siblings will have to use all their combined monster knowledge to save the day.
This is the first MLP comic book set in the Crystal Empire.
This marks the second MLP comic written by Rob, who had previously penned a MLP Micro-Series issue featuring Spike the baby dragon.
Rob’s other title in this month’s Previews is Rex, Zombie Killer #4, published by Big Dog Ink.
RZK #4 is written by Rob, with art by co-creator and CE alum DaFu Yu, along with interior colors by Juan Romera, lettering and design by E.T. Dollman, cover colors by CE alum Kevin Volo, and edits by CE alum and staffer Paul Allor. There are a lot of CE connections on this book!
This is the final issue of the mini-series which follows the journey of a hyper-intelligent golden retriever named Rex and a small pack of animals (including a gorilla with a baseball bat) as they try to survive the zombie apocalypse.
According to the solicitation on this one, Rex has led his pack of gorillas, pit bulls, and squirrels to the so-called “safe place,” only to find that Rex’s human is a prisoner. Will the animals survive a showdown with the soldiers running the bunker?
Congratulations to Rob on his new MLP gig, and to all the CE alums involved in the completion of the RZK mini-series!
